Journal ssintercept's Journal: Chicago's run for the Ring/s

being a chicagoan, i am very glad to hear that the city of the big shoulders (aka the windy city/ chicago) is in the race for the 2016 olympiad...Chicago has seen off Los Angeles to become the US Olympic Committee's chosen venue for the 2016 Summer Games. Chicago, which has never staged an Olympics, joins several other cities hoping to be handed the Olympic flame after London in 2012.

Madrid, Prague, Rome, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo may be joined by Azerbaijan and Qatar in the candidates' list. n 1904, Chicago was the first city in the United States chosen by the IOC to host a summer Olympics, but the Games were switched to St Louis.
